Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2001 Oldsmobile Bravada Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 142015

Bravada V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 96,000 miles


traveling in town the entire electrical system failed with out notice. No flashers, could not remove key, could not shift transmission and remained in gear . Could not unlock doors except manually. Don't under stand why if the motor was running, if the battery had died why the entire car would shut down. wrecker repaired by retightning battery cables which appeared tight to me. After car worked fine. Towing would had required flat bed truck. 2nd time it happened was when getting a new battery installed by Walmart. Do not know when it may happen again with no definite cause indicated by service at local gm dealer.

The car was running and waiting at stoplight when this occured, just idling, then nothing but traffic stacking up behind me honking horns. I did not have any flashers or sgnals of any kind.
